Lorraine Warren, the major Paranormal Investigator who inspired The Conjuring series, has died at the age of 92.

According to , Warren’s passing was announced by her son-in-law, Tony Spera, who said, “It is with deep sadness that I must announce that Lorraine Warren has passed away. She died peacefully in her sleep at home last night.”

“The family requests that you respect their privacy at this time. Lorraine touched many lives and was loved by so many. She was a remarkable, loving, compassionate and giving soul,” Spera added.

“To quote Will Rogers, she never met a person she didn’t like. She was an avid animal lover and contributed to many animal charities and rescues. She was wonderful and giving to her entire family. May God Bless her,” Spera’s statement concluded.

As previously mentioned, Warren and her late husband Ed were paranormal investigators whose work in the field inspired the entire Conjuring Universe, most notably the Annabelle doll, which is very real and was not just made up for the film series.

Warren is played by actress Vera Farmiga in the billion dollar possession-horror franchise, and her husband Ed is played by Patrick Wilson.

The Warrens were also partial inspirations for the classic haunted house film The Amityville Horror.
